Tim O’Brien talking to the reader when he says “he had been braver than he had ever thought possible, but how he had not been so brave as he wanted to be.” (Page 152) If this did not happen then Norman would never had mentioned not wining the Silver Star. Norman tried to save a life and other would have only cared about himself or herself and not save anyone else. The two characters in the two books do something heroic to help or try to help others. Odysseus tells his men to cover their ears so save them from the pain. Norman tried to save a life.
Even “despite terrible conditions the pioneers traveled over 1,000 miles to arrive in Utah” (Balinski 3). Due to this movement, future families and generations (pioneer ancestors) who made the trek are recognized and often spoken of not only in family gatherings of descendants but also in meetings of Church members, who view the pioneers’ example of bravery and sacrifice as inspirational” (Monson, 10). President Young, the
When there is something to be done for the team Jack is first to do it because he doesn’t want to things to get even worse. Now he makes sure to think deeply about all team related decisions and to keep Dick Miles under his radar. Ultimately, the three lessons of money can’t buy you everything, loyalty is more important than money, and to think before you do something are all very significant to the plot of the novel. These three lessons are not only meaningful to the plot, but they are also meaningful to life in general. I hope Jack Molloy is able to get the team back in order and that he took just as much away from those lessons than I
Had Claudio persevered in trusting his friend whom he loved, he never would have allowed himself to be duped by Don John. Of course, Claudio allows himself to be duped a second time as well, this time allowing himself to believe that Hero has been unfaithful. Again, had he allowed himself to trust his instinctual beliefs about Hero 's modesty and virtue and to question Don John 's character, he never would have allowed himself to be duped this second time, showing us just how important trust is in relationships. We see Shakespeare show us how important forgiveness is in relationships when we see Hero forgive Claudio for his atrocious behavior. Instead, she allows herself to be born anew through forgiveness and proceed with the wedding.
Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography was his greatest masterpiece. In Franklin’s autobiography lies his main objective, which was to achieve Moral Perfection. Franklin thought, in order to achieve Moral Perfection, he wished to live without committing any fault at anytime, and to conquer all bad habits and go from doing what is wrong to what is right. Franklin instantly figured out that the task he has chosen is near impossible to go through with. Franklin wrote this piece to tell people, to let them know that chasing failure is not always a bad option, in some cases.
Everest climb. Eventually when he climbs Mt. Everest, he climbs up the South side of the mountain. It was 1999 and only two years after the Great Avalanches on Everest. These series of avalanches claimed 18 lives and seriously injured many others.
He had kept all of his work secret from the church, only having his works published after death. This method of facing his problems had let him have more freedom, making him fearless of what would happen to him when published. All problems that anyone has will eventually be dealt with, whether they like it or not. Running from your issues is usually not a good idea, however actually facing them is the right way to go. Everyone changes through their responses to obstacles in their life, whether through the course of the problem as they run from it, or as a result from facing it head-on.
“What worried him the most...wasn’t that it was too late...what really ate his insides, was the fear that it wasn’t too late.” (Sachar 146). In my opinion, these lines were the most memorable in the book. They have reminded me the true meaning of friendship and how much a person can care about somebody else. I put these words into my own life thinking about how I would feel if my best friend went missing and I had no way of getting ahold of them to know if they were okay. It warmed my heart reading about how Stanley’s relationship with Zero was so strong that he risks his own life by hijacking Mr. Sir’s truck and briskly setting off to find Zero.
